Rose McGowan to Harvey Weinstein: There was no consent

NEW YORK (AP) – Rose McGowan says it’s time for Harvey Weinstein to drop his story about a “consensual” relationship.

The actress was responding to Weinstein’s denial that he raped McGowan. McGowan says in an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday that she wishes Weinstein would “fall off the planet.” She says that “truth” and “reality” are on her side. Weinstein issued a statement Wednesday that quoted an alleged email from McGowan’s former manager, saying that the actress had spoken of a consensual encounter with him. Weinstein is accused by multiple women of sexual misconduct.

McGowan’s memoir “Brave” was released this week. It includes a detailed account of being assaulted by the movie producer. McGowan also issued a statement Wednesday saying that his comments were part of an ongoing effort to “smear” her.
